List of options to pass to the compiler.

This property holds a ;-list of options given so far to the add_compile_options() command.

This property is used to initialize the COMPILE_OPTIONS target property when a target is created, which is used by the generators to set the options for the compiler.

Contents of COMPILE_OPTIONS may use “generator expressions” with the syntax $<...>. See the cmake-generator-expressions(7) manual for available expressions. See the cmake-buildsystem(7) manual for more on defining buildsystem properties.
